Te Welsh Costume talks Hybu Cig Cymru Lampeter Museum draws in visitors

Shout about local lamb during Love Lamb Week! ARE YOU passionate about

THE MUSEUM continues to

draw visitors from far and wide, many promising to come back for another visit. A fundraising event was held

during the day of Lampeter Food Festival, when people came to find the hidden treasure, and to name the teddy. A prize was won every time in the

treasure hunt and, if not lucky to win the bigger money prizes, there was a

choice of an old penny or sixpenny piece. Many tried to find the date of the year they were born, and young children were fascinated to see the old coins, many being more than a century old; a fine chance to learn about pre-decimal coinage. The ‘name the teddy’ competition

is ongoing until the end of October, so please come along and support the Museum by picking out a name for the teddy at a £1 a go.

The museum would like to take

this opportunity to make an appeal: Many people have been asking for books on the history of Lampeter. If you have unwanted local history books, or duplicates that you could dispose of, such as old guide books, etc., it would be fantastic is you could kindly donate them to the Museum bookstall, where they could be sold, with all money raised going to the Museum’s funds.

University shortlisted for top award

A B E R Y S T W Y T H UNIVERSITY has been shortlisted for a top accolade in the 2016 Times Higher Education Awards. The university has been named

as one of six finalists in the Most Improved Student Experience category. The five other higher education

institutes are Cardiff Metropolitan University, St George’s University of London, University of Surrey, Ulster University and York St John University. The winner will be selected from

data gathered by the THE’s YouthSight Student Experience Survey which asks around 20,000 students to rate the academic reputation, teaching, social life and facilities of their university. Acting Vice-Chancellor at Aberystwyth University, Professor

John Grattan, said: “The annual THE awards are seen as the higher education sector’s answer to the ‘Oscars’ so we’re naturally delighted to have been shortlisted for an award. We’re particularly pleased to be in the final six for the Most Improved Student Experience category, as providing a first-class student experience is at the heart of everything we do here.” “Only a few weeks ago,

Aberystwyth University was ranked the best in Wales and one of the top four universities of its kind in the UK for overall student satisfaction, so this latest nomination is further proof that Aberystwyth is an exceptional place to learn and live.” The overall winners in the 2016

THE Awards will be announced at a special ceremony in London in November.

Motorists have been fortunate in securing a grant from the Police and Crime Commissioners Fund for a total sum of £4,000. This will enable

the group to offer a £50 refund to any driver or rider under the age of 25 who enrol on the Advanced Driving/Riding course. There are 50 driver or rider

packages available and a driver or rider under the age of 25 will be eligible as long as they have passed their driving/ riding test for at least three months.

For motorcyclists, an A2 licence is also acceptable. Normally, a course costs £149, but

now a £50 refund will be given back to the applicant on completion of the course. All applicants must reside within the Dyfed-Powys Police area.

locally produced lamb? Do you love a lamb roast, curry, tagine or burger? Want to share a special lamb recipe for others to enjoy? If you answered ‘yes’, let’s

get together this week to laud our country’s luscious lamb! You can join HCC,

producers, butchers and chefs in a UK-wide campaign to promote and raise the profile of local lamb between September 1-7 during Love Lamb Week. For seven days, on-going

promotional activity will be boosted to increase consumer awareness and interest in the world renowned product. A plentiful supply of new

season lamb is available to buy in supermarkets and butchers’ shops in the summer/autumn months, a time when Welsh Lamb reaches peak seasonality. HCC research, conducted

during our recent tour of supermarkets which kicked off in Carmarthen, revealed that nearly 60% of the shoppers questioned thought that the spring was the best time to buy PGI Welsh Lamb. This common misconception was addressed on ‘Llamb’s Day’, HCC’s

celebration of Welsh Lamb on August 1, and will be reaffirmed during Love Lamb Week. You can get involved in

the week-long promotion in a number of ways. Promote the product by joining in the conversation on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #LoveLambWeek, #LoveLamb or #WythnosCaruCigOen. Share pictures of any activity or make mouths water with delicious lamb dinner snaps. Visit your local farm shop,

butcher or pub and ask them to join us in promoting Love Lamb Week. How about contacting your local school to suggest that they also get involved at the start of the new term? Try a selection of our

wonderful Welsh Lamb recipes which are listed online - - and let us know which one is your favourite! Check out our free recipe

leaflets at your local butcher for more inspiration and tempting lamb treats.
